Difficult Listening

Difficult Listening is a weekly radio show broadcast from WRFN-LPFM (Radio Free Nashville) in Pasquo, Tennessee. The two-hour show starts every Sunday at 10 am Central time; the second hour of the show, archived here, is always about poetry. Sometimes I interview a poet, but more often I read from, and discuss, a recent book of poetry. The show can be streamed live at www.radiofreenashville.org.
